Sutherland Elementary


Elementary Principal, Josie Floyd

Hello and welcome to Sutherland Public School! I am Mrs. Josie Floyd and I am the Elementary Principal. I want you to know how much I’m looking forward to starting the new school year. I hope your family has had a fun summer, possibly spending time at the lake, vacationing, or most importantly spending time with one another. I can’t wait to hear all about your child's summer adventures when we begin the new school year!

I have dedicated 17 years to this awesome school system and am very proud of our staff, students and community. Our staff works diligently to create positive learning environments and meet the needs of all students. My goal as elementary principal is to make school a great place to be for everyone. I want our students to learn, grow, challenge themselves, be kind to others, feel safe and have fun. I want our students to be kind, respectful, positive and responsible both in school and in the community. I will do my best to greet your child every morning when they come to school and encourage him/her to do their best and make every day count.

Please know that my door is always open. You are welcome to contact me by phone or email at 308-386-4321 or For up-to-date information regarding upcoming events and other school-related news, please check out our school website at or on Twitter at @spssailors and our Sutherland Public School Facebook page Our District also uses the "SchoolWay" app to share reminders, cancellations, and changes to scheduled events. Your oldest child in the elementary will always receive a copy of the Nautical News which is the school’s monthly newsletter to help keep you up-to-date and informed.

On behalf of the staff at Sutherland Public School, we are honored to teach your children and look forward to seeing you all soon! Here is to a great, learning-filled 2017-2018 school year!
